This was our first outing for a special birthday since the beginning of the pandemic. We sat on the patio and had a lovely night. The food, service and attention to safety was impeccable. I look forward to returning the next time I’m in Los Angeles.

Place is a great choice for vegetarians and vegans. Refried lentils and beet salad are great.

Amazingly balanced dishes! Extremely creative versions of classics! Up there in price but defiantly justified! Will be back again.

We went for my husband’s birthday, and we were on time for our reservation for 4 however they were not. We waiting maybe 15 minutes. It was very busy and loud.
Staff was friendly.

We sat in the back dining room and it was so loud I really felt like I was in a mess hall or something.
The acoustics are just very bad there. I think it’s on purpose though. It’s the architecture.

It was a busy night (Saturday) so the service was a bit slow. But not intolerable.

Food was good, most of what we ordered was very spicy, the chicken necks with the hot sauce were too much for me.
The queso was good, and so were the tortillas. The lamb neck was very good. Melt In Your mouth fall off the bone. Would Rex one day that dish!
then we ordered the whole snapper and it was very delicious. A really light fresh flavor to balance out all the spicy/ heavier stuff we I had before .
Desserts were good. We ordered a few to share.
Cocktails were also good.
We enjoyed it but I’m not dying to go back.
I would however recommend it.

Had a delicious birthday dinner there with five guests. We practically fought over the food. The frijoles were the best we ever tasted.

Turns the traditional notion of Mexican food on its head. Filtered through a second generation Mexican-American chef with classic French and European technique but still true to the roots of his food.

So many delicious things on the menu hard to pick one. Was lucky enough to get the Chateaubriand special. Highly recommended!

Excellent food. Loved the margaritas, refríed lentils & also cheese that came with tortillas. The masa soup was also excellent. At first we had some trouble deciding what dishes to select so that things would pair well together but our server (Liam) pointed us in the right direction. He was very attentive & helpful.
